Thanks to a generous donation from Meyerco, a Board of Regent member of the American Knife & Tool Institute, AKTI members will be entered in a giveaway drawing for a Darrel Ralph-designed Meyerco knife.
The Darrel Ralph Madd Maxx is a black-DLC-coated assisted-opening folder with a rigid titanium frame. It sports a bayonet-style CPM-S30V blade with a false edge along the spine and a 3D-machined carbon fiber handle.
According to the MeyercoUSA.com website, “Darrel Ralph is one of the true geniuses in the modern knife industry. He is also an accomplished custom knife maker whose work is among the most sought-after in history. His innovation and engineering is among the top designers today. In addition to his own custom knife designs, Darrel has provided technical insights into the mechanical designs and engineering for many knife companies around the world.
Ralph’s knives combine high-tech and artistic styling. Each one has excellent design but is also fully functional.”
Meyerco President Mike Manrose, chairman of the AKTI’s Education Committee, noted “Meyerco is very pleased to support our organization with the opportunity for a member to own one of Darrel’s knives.”
Anyone joining or renewing their membership to the nonprofit organization (AKTI) during 2012 will be entered in the drawing to be held in 2013 at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
The winner of the 2011 AKTI Membership Giveaway Knife donated by Ontario will be drawn Tuesday, January 17 at 2 p.m. at the SHOT Show in the Ontario booth #20305. This project is a special Ontario Knife Company OKC3S Marine Bayonet and the lucky AKTI member will also have a private factory tour and win a one-night stay in western New York State.
